Latest version of OS X El Capitan
I signed into iCloud properly in system preferences. Calendar appears to be receiving calendar events from iCloud because if I create a calendar event on my iPhone, it will appear on my Mac calendar.
The only problem is that if I create the event on the Mac it will not appear on iCloud on the Internet or on my iPhone. I logged into iCloud.com and the event is not there.
I also noticed that when I created an event on my Mac and tried to post on my Google calendar, it will not go to the Internet either. When I create a calendar event on the iPhone and select the Google calendar it will appear on the Mac and on iCloud.
When a family member creates an event on our family calendar it appears on both the iPhone and the Mac. However, when I create a calendar event on the Mac and try to select the family calendar, it appears on the Mac. It does not appear on the iPhone, iCloud on the web, or the other person’s family calendar.
On the Mac, in the Calendar Sources table, I only have the home, work, and family calendars that are directly under iCloud. There does not appear to be any local calendars that are “on my Mac.”
I feel like I have read through a million message boards, signed in and out of iCloud, toggled on and off calendar in iCloud system preferences, and basically pulled out all of my hair. I checked my wi-fi connection and it is fine. It seems like a lot of people have the problem but nobody appears to have a working solution.
Can anybody shed some light on why events created on my Mac will not appear on the iPhone or the iCloud web site? Does anybody know about checking ports on the Mac? Could my ISP somehow be blocking something? I am way beyond warranty, so I cannot call Apple.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
